Reviews of our Brooklyn Private Walking Tour
Fabulous Brooklyn walking tour
“My husband and I took a private walking tour with Andrew from Streetwise New York Tours a few weeks ago. Though I am originally a New Yorker, we explored parts of Brooklyn that I wasn’t familiar with. Our time with Andrew and our walking tour was a highlight of our visit to NY. This is a company to strongly consider when you are making plans to visit NY or one to use even if you live in NY and want to explore a new area of the city!”
Fabulous tour with Dan
“My husband and I did a private walking tour of Brooklyn with Dan and had a really enjoyable day! We felt like we were hanging out with an old friend as we meandered around the neighborhoods and he shared stories, history and special places we would never have found on our own. This was one of the most fun things we have done in all our years of visiting NY.”
Fun, Informative Tour of DUMBO and Brooklyn Heights
“We enjoyed the two hour tour with Ben. He gave us a great overview of the history of the neighborhoods….The walk was enjoyable, and not particularly strenuous. Great for anyone who wants to see and understand these neighborhoods. Wear comfortable walking shoes, and dress for the weather. Make sure to bring your camera, plenty of beautiful shots of the Brooklyn and Manhattan bridges.”
